Keep This Coupon
most fun just kibitzing over the muti-colored tickets spread out at our table. I had a grand conversation with the woman sitting next to me as we observed how some people shout out when they win a prize and there are others who simply raise their arm in the air and couldn't seem any less excited about winning. When my winning ticket was read, I quickly stood up and the prize-bringer (I know this is not a real word), a cute little blonde girl about age 10, brought that radio right to our table. My friends sat in envy. I know this because that's how I feel when those close to me win. And frankly, they were verbal about it, in a loving, jovial way that only friends can be! (giggles!) But, when my friend next to me had a matching ticket which netted her a $25 gift certificate to WalMart, you'd think she was auditioning for the Price Is Right! She jumped up out of her chair, arms raised in the air, screaming all the way to the front to get her prize and our table went wild! I want to sit with this group next year ~ I love their spirit. It was a fun night and we'll look forward to it again next year. It's the one time a year Gene gets to eat oysters since we left Yuma and it's a super awesome showing of unity among our friends.
